Spring Laser Sailing (Weekend)

This Spring we will be doing as much laser sailing as possible focusing on raising the bar of the laser sailing in the area. Each weekend we will introduce more drills and on the water activities to have a well-rounded set of skills at the end of the seasons. The first two weekends will be focused on sail controls and body movement in the boat. This will help to build a baseline for how everything feels and should feel while sailing. Weeks three and four we will be working on speed and boat handling. Without a good understanding of what the controls and your body movement do in the boat, it is hard to get your boat speed up. Weeks five through eight we will turn towards racing strategies. This will incorporate rabbit starts to a top mark which mimics the last third of an upwind beat. starting drills and other racing needs. The last two weekends I want to be like a mini regatta where I will set up a 30 min racecourse and will keep track of the points. This will allow us to put everything we worked on into action. There will be a winner for each regatta weekend, and we will keep track of the points to have a series winner for the two weekends as well.
I strongly suggest bringing a notebook. As many things can be forgotten over the course of a week when we are not sailing full time.
